    TCU

     No. 7 TCU (-5) at No. 20 West Virginia, 3:30 pm  ABC

    Daniel: I played with TCU on Xbox and put up 82 points on Texas Tech last week. Oh wait, that was real. The Horned Frogs can play some defense as well, giving up an average of just 21.6 points per game, good for second in the offense-heavy Big 12. But West Virginia is playing about as well as anybody, coming off of four straight wins and back-to-back big wins over Baylor and Oklahoma State. This should be a good one in Morgantown and I think TCU has the slightly hotter hand and pulls this one out. Winner: TCU 35-31

    Houston:  As we have seen all season long, Morgantown, West Virginia is a tough place to play. The Mountaineers welcomed then-undefeated Baylor to town two weeks ago and sent the Bears home with their first loss of the season in a 41-27 win. West Virginia followed that up with a strong 34-10 win on the road this past weekend against Oklahoma State and appear to be riding a nice wave of momentum on both sides of the football. All that said, TCU is playing mad right now, which was evident when the Horned Frogs went into Lubbock, Texas last week and hung 82 points on Texas Tech and the fighting Kliff Kingsburys. I like West Virginia a lot, especially Clint Trickett and Kevin White, but TCU looks like a team on a mission this week and I think they grind one out. Winner: TCU 34-24

    Reed: Gameday is in town for this weekend’s big couch burning  football game. The Mountaineers burned me (not a couch) last week when they completely dismantled Oklahoma State on the road. TCU probably could have beaten Texas Tech by 100 last week had they not called off the dogs. The Horned Frogs are an epic 4th quarter meltdown away from an unblemished record and have been more efficient on both sides of the ball than the Mountaineers so far this season. Frogs roll. No couch will be safe. Winner: TCU 42-30

    Brad: Ho-hum, Trevone Boykin just threw another touchdown pass … In the Horned Frogs’ 82-point onslaught against Texas Tech last week, I think I actually saw TTU coach Kliff Kingsbury get so ruffled that sweat formed underneath that immaculate quaff of hair. He had no answers for what has surpassed Baylor as the Big 12’s most unstoppable offense. This is one of the most intriguing matchups of the season, and the winner should have a leg-up in the conference. All year, I’ve thought Clint Trickett running Dana Holgerson’s offense to perfection and WVU playing a little defense too made the Mountaineers the conference favorites. But TCU is playing at such a high level right now, they’ll outscore the couch burners in Morgantown. Winner: TCU 41-33
